Hot Wedding Trend : Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

I have to admit that I love the wedding trend of the mismatched bridesmaid dresses. It’s so fun to see the personality of each bridesmaid come out in the wedding photos.

And, don’t forget that even the guys in the wedding party can pull-off the mismatched look {as you will see in the montage below}. Today’s post is inspired by week 4 of the 52 Weeks of Wedding Photos Instagram Challenge.

When it comes to mismatched bridesmaid dresses you have several choices . . .

1. Different Colors / Same Dress Style
2. Same Color / Different Dress Styles {as seen in this southern real wedding}
3. Different Colors / Different Dress Styles {as seen in this real wedding in Canada}
4. Same Color but varying shades {think ombre} / Same Dress Style
5. Same Color but varying shades {think ombre} /  Different Dress Style
